FIFA World Cup

AUS vs OMAN: Match Prediction, Team News & Kickoff Time

Australia appears to be on track to compete in the FIFA World Cup for the second time. They've done well in the qualifying thus far and are among the favourites from Asia to make the finals.

On Match Day 3 of the third round of qualifications, Australia will host Oman in Group B in Doha, Qatar. With six points, Australia leads the group, while Oman is in third place with three points. Australia is coming off a 10-game winning streak and has previously defeated Vietnam and China in this group. They've kept four consecutive clean sheets and have eight clean sheets in their last ten games.

Australia has won 12 of their previous 13 World Cup qualification matches, preserving eight clean sheets and scoring more than two goals in nine of them. Seven of their last ten World Cup qualification matches have seen them score two or more goals.

Oman has met Australia nine times and will be looking to win the tenth, after losing five of the previous nine and winning only once. They've won four and lost one of their last five games, and they're up against a much stronger opponent here. Oman's defence will be one area where they can improve; they haven't done so well in that department. They have two clean sheets in their last eight matches, and facing Australia with those numbers will be difficult. They've only failed to score in two of their ten games, with five of them yielding more than two goals.

Oman has only lost three of its past ten World Cup qualifying matches, winning the other seven, and keeping clean sheets in four of those encounters. Oman has failed to score in two of their last five World Cup qualification matches.

SUMMARY:

Australia has dominated Oman in prior meetings, and with their current form, I anticipate them to continue their dominance in this game. While Oman has a decent record going into this game, this will be a much more difficult task. I believe Australia will easily win this match.

Kickoff Time: This match will be played tomorrow at 7:30 PM Nigerian time.
